Alright guys and gals we had a great episode brought to us and once again I deeply apologize for getting this review late to you, my readers. But at least I’m able to get things to you now. We have quite a lot to talk about, so lets get to this review!
So in this episode we see Manchester Black (David Ajala) and his Elite work on trying to get what they need to make an assassination attempt on Ben Lockwood/Agent Liberty (Sam Witwer) even though the assassination attempt fails but it does spark more fear of alien races that live on Earth. I really like though that they have been in a way sparking how important it is for younger generations who might watch the series to know that racism is a real thing and that it is always being touched on television series’s in the past but I think it’s being touched a whole lot more especially with a lot of it happening in our world today with so many people targeting each race, hating on each race and in a way with it being touched upon in television shows such as Supergirl in an interesting way it helps the younger generations to help bring the messages of stop hating on each other out too.
After the assassination attempt the president ends up assigning a special agent in Ben’s security detail which we all knew would be Alex (Chyler Leigh) because we know that Col. Haley (April Parker Jones) will always try to punish Alex anyway possible but with the approval of the president. The only thing that really made me question what Haley was up to is when she was actually acting nice towards Alex and Lena (Katie McGrath) like she is never nice, she’s always cold hearted and ruthless like a mind-less soldier but instead there were moments that she was actually nice and it made me worried. And then Haley ends up letting Lena have the next day off, it’s like who made this decision? What made her come up with this decision? I still don’t trust Col. Haley and I don’t think I ever will!
I’m sorry to have to bring this up but seriously Superman, who leaves the key to the fortress just laying around outside of the door? I don’t care if you are currently not visiting the fortress, you don’t leave the key laying around for anyone to be able to see. It was covered by snow a lot of you will try to argue with me, if The Hat (Louis Ozawa Changchien) was able to find the key so easily by just dusting off the snow then anyone can find it. Even Lex, and you know you don’t want Lex getting into your fortress, I think Superman is getting a little careless in his old age. You all know he’s getting old don’t argue!
I think what a couple of people have pointed out before about Kara/Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) is actually true especially in this episode, that she brings out the better being of people. I mean one person I think she’s truly touched the life of recently would be Ben Lockwood’s assistant Quentin (Jonathan Bennett) after he was saved by Supergirl for the first assassination attempt on Ben; Quentin saw Supergirl as a superhero but if any of the other aliens are not superheroes then they are still scum at least in his eyes but that’s not true, all aliens are the same, beings trying to co-exist with the human race on Earth. But it was after the carnage and chaos that Ben Lockwood and Manchester all brought to the conference is when Quentin’s eyes were really opened to seeing that humans and aliens are suppose to live together, they are suppose to help each other and it was thanks to Supergirl that helped him see the errors of his ways.
And last but not least, we saw James Olsen (Mehcad Brooks) get shot and bleed out in his office at Cat Co. I have a theory in to who might’ve shot him or paid to have him be shot. And I think it might be a regular hit man who was paid by Lex to have James be shot and killed because in Lex’s eyes James broke the heart of his little sister Lena so as a big brother he has to act out and show what happens to people who break little Lena’s heart. And since Lex is being brought into the episode next week I just might be right. All I know is, James better not die, we can’t lose our photographer especially after taking that great picture of what happened at that conference with the chaos.
